Anyone using one of these?

Don't know if this goes here or in maintenance and refit.

If you have one,is it a 1:1 ratio or other? Any problems?

Thanks,
Alan

I have one on my Pearson. I believe my 424 has a 2:1 ratio. I haven't had any problems in the past 2 years, and it appeared when I bought the boat to have not really been touched in the past 24 years. Maintenance is easy, remove the lug nut in the bottom side (opposite of the engine side), drain the oil, and fill with straight 30 weight motor oil. Mine takes maybe a pint, and I usually run a bit through to clean it out. I haven't really done much else with it other than take the rust off that was there when I bought it and give it a good paint job to protect it.

So is your transmission 1:1 then?
I am repowering and need to decide where to do the 2:1, in the V-drive or at the transmission.
Thanks

ps: I have manual, parts list and drawings in pdf form . if you want a copy EM me your EM address.
Mine is currently a 1:1.67 and I am sending it back to Walters for an overhaul (seals) and possible a gear ratio change.
